Friday updates

I don't have any of my own news still. I've two partials out and a full MS of my second book, POSTMORTAL, and to be honest I've not been sending out query letters for the most part the last couple of weeks. I'm enjoying the time with my daughters before the summer ends.

My first MS has gotten some surprise interest. I hope to update you guys with some news about that in the next few weeks. I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, yeah?

In a way quite pimpish, I'm going to share some news I just gave myself this morning due to my googling. Remember this cover I showed you last Saturday?

The book is now number 8 in Poland. My little brother is so famous! I'm so proud of him. Another thing I discovered since my last post is that he has many other cover art projects he has done, and one of his more recent works is this:

Can you believe it?!? Sherrilyn Kenyon! Since I'm going to assume most of you don't speak Polish, that's the cover of Night Pleasures from the Dark Hunter Series. He's working with someone to do the series' covers. I'm so giddy with pride.

Well, I'm off to work since that winning lottery ticket remains elusive. I hope you all have a rockin' weekend, and I should be back to my post-y self in a week or so. Miss you guys!

Exciting News

Not my own news just yet, but exciting for my adopted little brother in Poland. He and I have been great friends for years. He spent last summer with me here in Texas and he's coming again next April.

Since we became friends, I've finished two books and he's been signed on as a cover artist for two publishers in Poland. I was browsing Polish book store websites this morning and found out that this book he is on the cover of:

is number 25 on the Best Seller's list in Poland. Isn't it pretty? He's such a good artist. He did the covers for the Melissa De La Cruz Blue Bloods series. These are his other covers:

To see his other amazing art, this is his webpage: Wojtek's Awesomeness

I don't have any news of my own just yet. I'm still spending time with my daughter while she's in town. We're off to my parents' house today. I have two partials and one full MS out with agents right now. Keep your fingers crossed. I hope everyone's doing good. Sorry for the absence, but I'll be back regularly in a week or two.

Miss you guys!
